Garrett followed the warrior up into the trees and wondered how long exactly it took her to become accustomed to blending and swinging in the branches. She moved without hesitation like he and with a Grace that was above normal for a regular vampire.
He wondered which war she was in, there were many covens in the south, he had escaped when the coven leader who held him captive was destroyed by the Major and Enyo. He had not ever laid eyes upon the legendary duo, until years later when he met Peter, Charlotte and Major.
He had at first thought Charlotte was Enyo until they or Peter informed him that Enyo stayed in the south.
“Now we wait, stand in the field, look confused or relaxed. Let them think that you lost them, they will not harm you.” Sabel stated, her eyes flicking from one spot to another.
He felt like he needed to defend himself at that statement. “I can fight, just not three experienced fighters at once.”
Sabel chuckled and raised her hands. “I know you can Nomad, I didn’t mean for it to come across as it did.”
“Apologies, I didn’t mean to snap. People assume I cannot fight as my scars are few and mostly hidden, apparently I look helpless.” The chuckle that escaped from his lips was dry.
He didn’t wait for her to reply before jumping down and forced himself to look relaxed, tilting his head back to soak the warmth of the hidden sun. It didn’t take long for the nomads to reach their hearing range and Garrett wondered how Sabel could hide her scent so well when the air swirled around him.
“We’ve caught you now Nomad.” The leader’s voice chuckled out darkly and Garrett sighed before turning his attention to said leader, making sure to keep his ears open for the other two that circled around.
“Did you think you could escape us?” The female giggled her high pitch voice grating on his nerves.
Garrett couldn’t help but laugh as the three began to circle around him, for once he didn’t feel like he was in danger, safe knowing that Sabel would keep her word. He didn’t know why he trusted her but deep down within, his instincts screamed, that he could.
“Why are you laughing Nomad? Three against one, we have you trapped.” The leader hissed, confusion flashing on his face.
“He’s laughing because he’s the bait and you fell right into our trap.” Sabel chuckled huskily from the trees, causing all three to stiffen and spin around. They could not see who spoke, nor smell or hear and Victoria could not sense the danger nearby.
James snarled as he scanned the tree line for the vampire that spoke before freezing as his eyes locked onto black eyes peering through the branches, a fire burning in their depths.
